Where compressed air escapes, friction develops between the gas molecules and the pipe wall. This friction produces a high-frequency ultrasound inaudible to the human ear.
The Airia Leak Detector registers the ultrasound, transforms it into an audible sound and indicates it optically. In this respect, only those frequencies are registered which will occur in the case of leakage. Thus, the precise location of the leak is also identified where the industrial noise is present.
Using the Airia Leak Detector, the detection of compressed air losses at microcracks, worn-out flange joints, defective sealing rings or loosened connections no longer presents a problem.
On the way from the compressor to the consuming point, part of the expensively produced compressed air always escapes.
In the ‘average daily case, such leaks already amount to 25 – 30 % of the produced compressed air quantity, or even to 50 % or more in extreme cases.
